Alexander and Jordan
Year 1 Week 27

Alexander:  I am trying this potty training thing.  I don't quite get it.  Why try to go in a potty when I can just go in my pants?  Frankly I think the best part of the whole deal is watching my parents make fools of themselves singing songs to get me to go pee.  They could stand on their heads and I still wouldn't pee in that thing.
    I have invented this way of speaking that pretty much guarantees that my parents will be the only ones who understand me.  For example if I want the ball I say "Do-do-do ball".  I say "do-do-do bye-bye", "do-do-do juice" (which sounds just like the word for shoes) and "do-do-do pee" which is very occasionally related to actually having to go pee.  It is just fun watching them run around to pull down my training pants and get me on the potty.   

Jordan:  Grandma and Grandpa Branzburg had to leave on Saturday morning.  That means no more bouncing on the ball with grandma.  It also means that mommy and daddy will not have all of the extra help.  Grandpa did an amazing job refinishing the deck (see pictures) which really helped my dad to be much happier and feel less guilty for not doing the job already.
    I have to watch out for Alexander.  He thinks he is big enough to pick me up, but he isn't.  Fortunately most of the time my mom or dad catch him before he can do it.  He is good to me too.  He give me kisses and hugs and puts the pacifier back in my mouth when it falls out.  All in all he is a good brother.

1. 2. 3. 1-2.  Proud dad and his boys and mom and her boys.
3.  The Branzburg family
4. 5. 6. 4.  Snuggling up to daddy.

6.  How do you say elbow in Russian?
7. 8. 9. 7-9.  It was obvious to me that he needed his pacifier.  How come nobody else can see that?
10. 11. 12. 10.  Grandma Branzburg and Jordan.(this looks pretty similar to one with Alexander)
11.  I am just thankful that they changed from the rated R picture to the one rated G.
12.  This is the best part of the bath.
13. 14. 13.  Where have you been hiding this thing?  This is great!
14.  Tired out after a long day at the mall.
